Family Day 

Join us at the Vancouver Maritime Museum for Family Day 2024! This event, right in the heart of beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, promises a day filled with excitement that will entertain and educate family members of all ages.


Family Day is more than just a day out – it’s an adventure! Immerse yourself in the rich maritime history of Vancouver, explore captivating exhibits, and dive deep into the world of sea exploration. Whether you’re a history buff, a maritime enthusiast, or just looking for a fun and engaging day out with the family, there’s something for everyone at VMM. We’re also delighted to welcome the Coastal Nations Coast Guard Auxiliary vessel and crew.* Crack On and Chickpea food trucks will be in the parking lot at the Maritime Museum and available to visitors.

Family Fun

At Family Day, we believe in the power of learning through fun. Families will have the opportunity to participate in interactive exhibits, hands-on activities, and engaging educational programs. It’s a perfect occasion to bond with your loved ones while learning about the fascinating maritime history of Vancouver.
